24mo - 13.5 x 9 cm.; 78 pp. Dark blue cloth over very light-weight but stiff boards. Gilt lettering on front and spine. Designed to be a pocket edition that would stand up to constant usage. M'Intyre (or McIntyre) was a professor of Sacred Scripture at Oscott College, Oxford. The title page is illustrated with a gryphon (griffin) standing on its hind legs; the winged lion emblematic of St. Mark. This same symbol was adapted by Eric Gill but stood erect on all fours to be used as a cover illustration for Fr. Ronald Knox's translation of this gospel as published in pamphlet form. The text block edges are dyed red. Minor wear to the cover corners and edges with a wee bit of edge folding to the top of the fore edge margin of the first 5 or 6 pages. An unusual pocket edition in rather remarkable condition.
